Attorney at Law

Anthony Abbott

In talking to my father we decided the closest thing to God was to be an MD. But after three years in the US Army as a battlefield Medic and a Medical Laboratory Technician stationed in Japan and Korea from 1957 to 1960, I found that I could not stand MDs, only 5% are worth anything so I became a Lawyer.

I did not know 50 years ago when I was sworn in as a Lawyer that the lawyers of today would not base their practice on the Paragon of Lawyers, Abraham Lincoln, instead what we have now are a lot of cutthroat lawyers, many of whom, do not care about their clients but are only out to fleece their client, sell their clients down the river, they are terrified to go to trial, I am a member of THE AMERICAN TRIAL LAWYERS ASSOCIATION. I am 84 years old, and that is not what I do, I do not sell my clients down the river. . When necessary, I will not hesitate to go to trial for my client.

But unfortunately, people go on hurting each other, and after 50 years I am still in business following the example of Abraham Lincoln.

As I have told many of my clients, if you are dealing with an honest person, all you need is a handshake, but if you are dealing with a thief, you can have boxes of papers 5 feet tall, and they mean nothing. A thief is a thief, and in my office, they get their comeuppance.

Clients continue to recommend Anthony Abbott because:

  • Anthony Abbott has been a Judge in the Superior Court, Municipal Court, Mediator, Arbitrator, Judge Workers’ Compensation.

  • Anthony Abbott has been employed by several huge insurance companies – he knows what they will do to you because he did it.

  • The Law Office of Anthony Abbott cares about its clients, and we do not hesitate to push our opponents exceedingly hard to obtain favorable outcomes for our clients.

I'm honest and ethical, but I can be an SOB when necessary.
